in Demarest NJ |
Dr. Kumar has been very friendly and personable, and attentive to my needs. Highly recommend to family and friends! The office wait time could be better, but overall i'm happy.
Union City, NJ |
She has been working with my mother for awhile and my mother loves her so I tried her. She was very nice the first time, and then I returned and she was extremely rude. She asked me inappropriate questions that had nothing to do with my reason for visit. I had not seen the doctor in awhile and she lectured me about it and told me I could never be successful in my choice of career because I can't even take care of myself. She was not professional, and I wouldn't recommend her.

Dr. Kumar was friendly and personable, and overall I had a high level of confidence in her medical judgement.
in Union City, NJ |
One hour and 10 minute wait to get into the examining room (I was the only one in the waiting room) and then another 20 for Dr. Kumar to come in. She is very unfriendly and not welcoming to her office. Appointment was 10 minutes and I had little faith in her knowledge of medicine as compared to other physicians I have seen in my past. I walked away very disappointed and unsure of Dr. Kumar's diagnosis so I have made an appointment with my former doctor even though she is much farther away.
